yoda87960 commented on Rumour: EarthBound Not Coming to Virtual Console:

I listened to the samples and Nintendo has reasonable doubt on their side. If Vanilla Ice can get away with the similarities in Ice Ice Baby, Nintendo shouldn't have any problems with putting out a decade old game that sort of vaguely sounds like real songs. Who would ever think to sue in a case like that? Also, what about the GBA trilogy? That's a real game that went into stores. Why couldn't the artists sue them over that? I don't buy it. Nintendo's legal department would have to be filled with a bunch of idiots, which also wouldn't fly since they dodge Wii Fit lawsuits daily.

"Now, I don't wish to dissuade you from buying an Xbox360 or a PS3, but please do it for the RIGHT reasons. Banjo Kazooie alone isn't worth it."

No, but Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts is. That game is incredible. Granted, Perfect Dark Zero appears to be incredibly lame, but Rare got their act together. The reason the VC is so important on Wii is because their back catalog games are more interesting than their current catalog ones. Would you rather play Wii Music or Earthbound? How about Disaster Day of Crisis or Super Mario World? Wii Play or Super Metroid?

"WHY THE HECK WAS NO PROPER HD SUPPORT ADDED? I'm fed up having to drag my standard cable out because games don't fit the image in the centre correctly if I use a Component Lead?"

Can't you just change the picture formatting setting to 4:3 on your TV? That's what I always do to play classic games. Or just use the xbox 360, which I'm pretty sure readjusts for wide, at least it did on Symphony of the Night.



yoda87960 commented on US VC Release - 7th July - King of the Monsters:

I'm starting to believe an Earthbound sequel is in the works. Why else would Nintendo hold up the release of this old game so much? Honestly, I was going to use this game as a hold out until Jasper xbox 360's, but now I don't what I'm going to do. I might be forced to buy a competitor's product. You hear that Nintendo?!



yoda87960 commented on Goldeneye NOT Virtual Console Bound?:

What's stopping them from releasing the titles on both systems? Seriously, how many people are going to buy an Xbox just for Goldeneye? From what I've heard, Microsoft likes money and I bet they'd be willing to make some by selling 10 year old games to Wii owners for way more money than they are actually worth. I predict an enhanced live version with a back to basics Wii version for 1500 wii points.

That clip makes me feel like I'm back in Toys R Us in the mid nineties. I'll definitely consider buying that.



yoda87960 commented on Punch-Out!!:

I'm of the minority opinion that this game isn't all its cracked up to be. To me, it's just a glamorized version of a really hard shoot 'em up. I can understand why others love it, but pattern memorization just bores me.
